Tom and Maggie welcome you to
Following two successful seasons providing bed and breakfast,
GlenanCross GuestHouse has now morphed into two self catering units: Cross House
and Cross Cottage.
Cross House and Cross Cottage are contained in a 19th century
farmhouse with courtyard, a short walk from the wonderful Camusdarach beach as
featured in the film Local Hero, and close to Loch Morar, where scenes from
Highlander were shot. This is the perfect holiday location and the ideal base
from which to explore the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Cross House sleeps
eight in four extremely well equipped bedrooms and Cross Cottage sleeps two to
four in a cottage studio with one or two rooms, bathroom and kitchen. Private
car parking is available on site for both houses. Free WIFI, toiletries, towels
and linen, and complimentary wood for the wood burning stoves is available for
both houses. They are situated on the idyllic coastal road (B8008) near Arisaig,
Morar and Mallaig.
This is a stunning location, close to Mallaig and Arisaig, both of
which have friendly bars, cafes and restaurants serving local seafood and
produce. Restaurants, pubs, grocery and craft shops can be found in the larger
town of Mallaig. Arisaig offer a pleasant café, hotel (with regular traditional
music), and shop.
In addition to the magnificent beach on your doorstep, there is a
wealth of activities including golf, boat trips, kayaking, fishing, walking and
sightseeing, and for the more energetic it’s a great pivotal place to access the
Cuillins of Skye, the Nevis (Aonach Mor, Ben Nevis) range and the Knoydart
This is the perfect base from which to enjoy outdoor pursuits,
explore the west coast and islands, or just put up the feet and relax. Near to
Morar and picturesque Arisaig and Mallaig, is a mile from the beautiful Traigh
9-hole golf course, and from Mallaig you can take a ferry to the islands, or a
boat trip to see whales and seals. You can also take a trip on a steam train
(The Hogwarts Express), made famous by the Hollywood blockbuster movie Harry
Potter, to the vibrant town of Fort William, which nestles under Ben Nevis to
the south, and which lays good claim to being the Outdoor Capital of Britain.
In their seasons as B and B proprietors, Maggie and Tom developed
an excellent reputation, gaining an award from Booking.com for achieving ‘a
suberb’ 9.2 review rating and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, after
amazing reviews. They are well known for their friendly approach and a helpful
‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude. They intend taking this approach and
their excellent hospitality into this new self catering venture.
